I went to Illinois this year (2010) and hunted Ten Mile Creek in southern Illinois.
It was crowded and was not really what I expected.
I am going back again in 2011 and would like to hunt a bow only area.
I have located two - Sam Parr and Sam Dale Lake - both appear to be good looking areas.
Does anyone have any experience in these areas? If yes, can you offer thoughts, opinions or advice?
Also does anyone know of any other areas that are bow only in Illinois?
